Creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Fresh Thyme

Creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Fresh Thyme

  • Author: Trish
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 1x

Scale

Ingredients

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 T. unsalted butter, room temperature
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2-3 T. half and half
2 T. fresh thyme leaves, minced
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground all-spice
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Optional toppings:
Whipped cream cheese**
Walnuts halves, toasted




Instructions

1.    Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, approximately 15-20 minutes. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

2.    Add butter, cream cheese, and half & half to the sweet potatoes and mash with an immersion blender or a hand-held mixer. For a thinner consistency, add more half & half, if desired.  

3.    Once the potatoes are creamy, stir in thyme leaves, cinnamon, and allspice until well blended. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately topped with a spoonful of whipped cream cheese and/or toasted walnuts, if desired. Enjoy!




Notes

**To make whipped cream cheese topping, blend 4 oz. softened cream cheese, 3 tablespoons half & half, and a dash of cinnamon with an immersion blender or hand-held mixer until light and fluffy. Cover and store any leftovers in the refrigerator and use wherever you enjoy regular cream cheese.
